It glistens and it shines… It’s as greasy as its glossy!
Yeah… I am talking about oily skin. Those who have it know it what goes into its care. It’s a losing battle against shine and grease on the face!
So let me tell you some intricacies about oily skin and how to set it right!
Overactive sebaceous glands! They are responsible for the increased production of sebum that further leads to oiliness of the skin. When sebaceous glands secrete more than normal amounts of oil, the skin pores stretch out and darken which then are called blackheads.
Other deciding factors of oily skin are genetic make up, hormonal changes during adolescence, medications and use of certain unsuitable skin care products. Well… genetics and hormones are something you cannot do much about, but there are many other things that you can do at your end to ensure undue oiliness doesn’t reside on your skin.
Here are some tips that you should keep in mind:
• Use skin care products that are specially formulated for your particular skin type
• Cleanse your face every morning and night so as to remove any dirt, impurities and make up residues. Do not cleanse more than twice a day as it will give way to skin dryness. Use mild water based cleansers that cleans the face but don’t irritate the skin. Avoid using cream based cleansers.
• Wear a sunscreen with high SPF content of 30 or more throughout the day. Apply it at least 15-20 minutes before venturing out and reapply as and when required.
• Follow an effective skin care regimen on daily basis and nourish your skin well.

Skin care products don’t have an expiration date. So, this makes things a bit tricky in figuring out when to toss out skin care products before they go bad.
As chief officer of an online skin care product store, a producer of my own product line, and operation of a new day spa, it’s important to understand the potency of a product and when it’s time to pitch it. Our health always comes first.
To keep track, some suggest writing a date on the packaging but so many of us forget to recheck it. Instead, a better way is to use your computer or cell phone calendar with “alarm” reminders for a 3, 6, 9 and 12 month checkup to see if it’s product trashcan time.
While many think their products may last up to two years that really may not be the case on all types of skin care and beauty products.
For example, if a cream or lotion product has turned thin or lumpy, chuck it. Other signs to watch out for are:
And anti aging products which contain antioxidants, retinol, and vitamins are always at a higher risk for a sooner expiration date. So be sure lids are replaced tightly.
To keep bacterial contamination from happening, keep your fingers out of those containers. When bacteria gets in there, the product is ruined and there’s no turning back. A perfectly new skin care product can go bad instantly once bacteria invades it.
Other helpful tips are:
Because there are no regulations and expiration dates, it’s really up to you to figure out when it’s time to part with your products. At first, it may feel like you are throwing away money, but in the end, you are saving your body from the threat of bacterial contamination. And no one wants to risk that.
Remember, these products only last so long once that lid is officially unscrewed.
Although moisturizers, serums, and creams tend to last 6 months to a year, some product ingredients can speed up the expiration date such as:
It’s important to point out that if you stick with your skin care routine and are mindful of bacterial contamination, chances are you’ll use up your product before it expires.

The answer is a resounding Yes!
A very common misconception among women is that acne prone skin does not require moisturizers. This is because acne is supposed to be a consequence of oily skin and moisturizers are further thought of as something that aggravates the oiliness of the skin.
However, what most people fail to realize is that there is difference between moisture and oil. Moisturizers are hydrating substances that cover the tiny fissures of the skin and provide a soothing protective film. In fact, moisturizers slow the evaporation of the skin’s moisture and thus keep up the hydration levels.
Moisturizers are not your enemy. Rather they can be very good friends when you know what to use on acne prone skin. It’s all about getting the right moisturizer. Here are some tips to choose a moisturizer for acne prone skin.
The moisturizer should be oil-free and especially formulated for acne prone skin. It should be lightweight and preferably gel based. This makes sure that it is gentle on the skin and doesn’t add on to the oiliness of the skin.
It should contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid that treat acne, lessen acne sores and improve the skin quality.
Most importantly, the moisturizer should be anti-acneic and should not further irritate your acne.
Here is a great choice:
iS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum: It is a hydrating, soothing and anti-acneic moisturizer.

Acne prone skin is perhaps the most difficult to manage. One of the prime reasons for acne is oily skin. Oily skin accumulates dirt and debris more than other skin types. This clogs the skin pores and forms a breeding place for bacteria which further leads to acne.
Though, difficult to manage, taking care of acne prone skin is not impossible. Here are some tips to help keep acne at bay:
Don’t touch your face with your hands
Keep hair off your face
Wash your face regularly
Follow an acne skin care regimen
Do Not Stress
If you keep all these points in mind, acne will be kept at bay. Take care…
